OUR WORLD - Hitting New Zealand's West Coast

After feasting our senses on these and more beauties

we head south and west to the South Pacific Ocean

a great spot to stretch our legs and enjoy the colours
of the open ocean

a magnificent beach and so very crowded

not just one or two pieces of driftwood to use as foreground!

Having filled our lungs with the sweet, pure air,
time to move onward.

Linking with OUR WORLD


  1. The flowers are pretty and I love that driftwood on the beach. I am nearly home now from my trip to Malawi and Zambia, just waiting at Heathrow for my flight this afternoon but thanks for leaving me all the comments when I was away.

  2. Hello, I love the beautiful flowers and the gorgeous beach. The driftwood is awesome. Thanks for sharing your visit. Enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  3. Imagens magníficas Arija
    Que delícia passear num lugar tão encantador
    Energias renovadas é claro
    Um dia iluminado para você

  4. The driftwood adds drama to the beautiful scenery!

  5. Oh yeah, those crowded beaches are just the kind I love too! Picking up on your irony and knowing you know that i love the quiet! As you do. We love that ocean (the other side of it). The Atlantic, here in Florida, is not as beautiful and is more crowded.

  6. I always love the flowers, but today the driftwood is my favorite!! Great capture and different!! Hope your new year is off to a great start, Arija!! Enjoy!

  7. Amazing shots.The driftwood makes great photos.

  8. das sieht sehr schön aus. allerdings sind 40 Grad und Dürre nicht gerade schön. Da würde ich dir gerne ein bisschen Schnee schicken :)
    Liebe Grüße

  9. Happy New Year to you!
    You have some magnificent beach scenes today. So very lovely.

  10. Love the sandy beach and driftwood. We have lots of driftwood on our lake because of logging activities and trees that escape float back and forth with the wind. Old stumps are washed out and look much like the ones in your picture. - Margy

  11. That's my kind of "crowded" beach.

  12. What a wonderful place Arija, your photos are beautiful. Happy New Year :)

  13. Thank you very much. I enjoyed imagining my walk on your beach.

  15. What lovely scenes! I plan to be down that way in a few months!

  16. How beautiful! Love the driftwood in that last shot.

  17. Love the peaceful and so calm mood in your beach impression. enjoy the beautiful time!
    HNY and Hugs for you.

  18. Ohh! I'm jealous. That water looks great and that driftwood is something else. Love the pics!
